Help me if you can, guys! I've got three that I've searched for but are probably not popular enough to show up on many lists.

The first I don't have much to go off of, but my reference is specific enough that if you've seen the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about right away. It's a 80's-ish movie where balls of light from what I think is a UFO come into a family's house while they're sleeping and rest over one of the main character's wife and kids. The glowing balls suck away at the life-force of the wife and kids and leave their bodies dessicated (dryed out/mummified). At the end of the movie the glowing balls come back and the man gets his wife and kids back. I think maybe he's aged and they haven't in the time they've been gone.

The second should be easy too, if you know it. There's a college-aged/teenage girl with a giant computer in her room with a small hand-puppet attached to it. I think the puppet's name is Georgie, or something. He's in something like a little professor's outfit and has a high pitched voice. The girl has some people over and the super-computer/puppet kills them/zombifies them with flying metal balls that he controls.

The one I've had the most trouble with is set in the late 70's/80's/early 90's??? and has what I think were several college-aged or older friends going out somewhere in the countryside (could be wrong about the location) and being attacked by zombies that are controlled by a demonic priest... or something like that. I'm really fuzzy on the specifics. I do remember the male lead's friend showing off by doing a bunch of karate kicks to a soda can, keeping it in the air (this comes in later when karate kicking the zombies). I also remember the male lead having some kind of supernatural power that manifests itself at the end of the film in a showdown after all of the friends (except for the love interest) have been killed/turned into zombies. His head becomes white, hairless, and also maybe earless? This one has been bugging me since I was 12!

Thanks in advance for any help guys!

Re: No. 3 you should check out FEAR NO EVIL (81) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082367/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 and see if it rings any bells.

Fear No Evil is a really good guess but I don't think it's the one I'm thinking of. That scene with kicking the can is the one thing I'm 100% on and I don't think Fear No Evil has that. I also feel like the movie I'm talking about looks cheaper and older...

#3 is "Demon Wind."  The guy in the magician's outfit does spin-kicks against a soda can, if my memory serves.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
